Abstract

India remains far from attaining the goal of health for all proposed by WHO during 1977   to be achieved by 2000. According to WHO, Alma-Ata Declaration of 1978, “The people have a right and duty to participate individually and collectively in the planning and implementation of their health care” [1].

With this statement the focus started shifting towards community development through their participation.
